We're Back!

Well we are back in cold and snowy Edmonton, and are already missing the sunny and warm beaches of Mexico! We arrived back home last night after 2 wonderful weeks in the Mayan Rivieria. I had good intentions of posting occasionally as the weeks went on, but it never seemed to work out, so my apologies for the lack of activity :)

Our wedding was on January 11, 2011 and it was wonderful! I don't have any wedding pictures yet, but as soon as I get some from the photographer or family & friends, I will put some up. It was a fabulous day, we had such a blast!

On January 19 (last Wednesday I believe) we went to the Tulum beach and spent an amazing two hours walking along one of the most amazing beaches I have ever seen.  Afterwards, we stopped at an outdoor bar/restaurant and enjoyed some delicious Mexican food.

We started with some nacho chips served with pico de gallo and a deliciously spicy salsa.  Also, my mother-in-law had the bartender chop off the top of a coconut so that we could enjoy the coconut milk. After we were done, they were kind enough to cut out the inside of the coconut for us, delicious!

Then we decided to share an appetizer platter, and an order of fish tacos as it was too early for a big supper.

The appetizer platter had such an amazing array of food! The mango salsa was so delicious, and I also couldn't get enough of the little fish bites (I am not sure of the real name). Both my husband (my husband? crazy!) and my father-in-law said the shrimp were awesome too.

Above all, the fish tacos were my absolute favourite. They were so simple, but had so much amazing flavour! I need to find out how to make the sweet and tangy tamarind sauce to go with them, and then I will definitely be making these at home. Kudos to my mother-in-law for knowing what tamarind's are, I had no idea what the sauce was initially!

This was just one of the many amazing days (and many amazing meals!) we have had over the last two weeks in Mexico.  It was such a wonderful vacation, I recommend the area (and our resort the Grand Palladium) to anyone looking for a perfect vacation!
